Falcon Lane Pottery
wheel-thrown functional stoneware pottery
Falcon Lane Pottery is functional stoneware designed to add delight and grace to ordinary rituals of daily life. Working primarily on the wheel, I enjoy forms that can be altered or thrown in parts and constructed, as well as one-piece forms. Impressed surface design, carving, layered and sprayed glazes and some slab work are all part of Falcon Lane Pottery. Texture that invites touch, colors that engage the eyes, a sense of the substantial, forms that offer both balance and movement all combine to encourage moments of slow time in a fast world. This is what I hope people receive from my work. Images of my work can be found at www.falconlanepottery.com .
